PRO Oxford Comma.
What is the Oxford comma?
Why does it matter?
IT IS EVERYTHING.
EVERYTHING I TELL YOU.
The ‘Oxford comma’ is an optional comma before the word ‘and’ at the end of a list: We sell books, videos, and magazines. It’s known as the Oxford comma because it was traditionally used by printers, readers, and editors at Oxford University Press.

Why do people care?
BECAUSE. If you don’t care you eat your Grandma!
If you don’t care then your parents are Hello Kitty and Spongebob:
Without Oxford comma: I invited my parents, Hello Kitty and Spongebob.
With Oxford comma: I invited my parents, Hello Kitty, and Spongebob.
So why do I CARE???
The Oxford comma saves lives. That’s why.
Okay, I confessed, your turn: are you pro-Oxford comma? Or you know, something else weighing on you that you’d like to confess? Do you *gasp* *looks around nervously* *whispers* not use the Oxford comma?
